Small sleek solid teak sideboard Richard Hornby for Fyne Ladye Furniture
One of the few makers to use solid wood instead of veneers most Fyne Ladye Furniture from the late 1950s and early 1960s was made of the darker afromosia . This design is from circa 1963/64 , and we think its probably one of the last designs to be made before this long established quality maker stopped production . It’s rare to find a teak piece
Richard Hornby was a very accomplished designer , his simple lines and cut-out handles are a typical feature of his pared back designs .
Its 152cms long , just under 51cms deep and 71cms in height .
It’s been cleaned and oiled and looks great . One of the few sideboards where the back is almost as good as the front ! Even most Danish sideboards of the era are cheaply finished at the back , but this one has a striking grain
